Has anyone tried a conversion plug to use 25 cal brass with a rifle primer or 22 hornet or the little metal primer cups that holds a large or small primer. I was thinking about trying one for accuracy, less fouling. Why aren't they more popular?
Absolutely no need to do the conversion if shooting BH209 powder.
I bought some of those Variflame primer conversion kits for my Remington 700ML. Because I wanted to use Blackhorn 209. Changed the firing pin and everything. Thought I was good to go. Went to the range where I could go out to a grand. 50 miles away. Got loaded up to fire the first shot with new primer system and fired. Hang fire. Thought I wasn't suppose to get hang fires with this system. Thought, ok I must still have lube in the primer holder or flame channel. Loaded second round. Primer goes off and that's it. Put another primer in. Again primer goes off. Didn't ignite the powder in two primers. I was mad. Traveled 50 miles back home and changed it back to 209 system. And the primer holders was not that easy to get out of the nipple. Seemed like the bolt would nick the primer holder upon firing.
